Teenage Driving

  • Without a single word being spoken, this says it all….
    This is the new Wear your Seatbelt ad the United Kingdom is doing.  It was started by someone not hired to do it, but because the cause is important to him.  He came up with this idea, and now it’s being hailed across the world as a beautiful commercial.  The video has become so popular with the general public that people are forwarding it to friends/family on their own so quickly that it has spread all over the world in a very short time.  Check out this remarkable ad.
